We’re delighted to announce that Sacla’, the Pesto Pioneers, has announced an expansion of its 4 year-long partnership with us.
Sacla’ will be funding 6 additional scholarships over the next 3 years (2 per year) providing students from less advantaged backgrounds with a financial scholarship worth £5K for each year of their university course.
We will recruit students from sixth forms we already work with and support them throughout. All the students will get the opportunity to carry out work experience placements at Sacla’ headquarters in Beaconsfield during their courses with the possibility of employment at the end.
Clare Blampied, MD of Sacla’ said:
“We chose to offer our scholarships in partnership with Working Options in Education 4 years ago because of their professionalism and their on the ground links with young people. Those from less advantaged backgrounds will be particularly adversely affected going forward, so we wanted to increase the number of scholarships we can offer. We hope other companies in our sector will consider doing the same.”
